A man in Liverpool, UK, was on high alert when he noticed a group of young men approaching a frail old man at night time in the city centre. However, it transpired that the onlooker had nothing to fear, as it turned out the group only wanted to help the man get home.

Colm O'Grady said the group of five gave him 'faith in humanity' after he witnessed them help the old man cross North John Street before paying for his taxi home.

Mr O'Grady - who filmed the touching encounter - said: "So I just had my usual little walk around town to see what's the craic for the night and spotted a very fragile old man across the road.

"A group of young lads approached him so I thought I'd keep an eye.

"To their credit, they spotted he was old, fragile and probably out of his comfort zone (Liverpool on a Friday night) then walked him to the nearest taxi and paid for his taxi home!

"Gave me a little faith in humanity. Fair play lads."

Mr O'Grady subsequently shared the video on Facebook and it has been shared more than 6,000 times and received heaps of complimentary comments.

One person said: "This is a lovely thing to see they are a credit to their parents thank you for caring lads."

Another said: "Credit to you guys and your parents for bringing you up right. Nice to hear positive stories."

A third commented: "What a lovely bunch of caring young men. Well done to them. What a lovely and kind gesture."

Another added: "Nice to see that in this selfish world that a group of lads did. Respect for their kindness."

Indeed, there's plenty to be worried about in the world, and our news feeds can make it easy for us to lose sight of all the goodness out there.

Ged King is one example of someone selflessly doing their bit for others. The barber and ex-soldier from Manchester has created his own foundation to help homeless people into work by offering free haircuts, as well as training them up and giving them jobs in his shops.

Speaking to LADbible, he said: "It wasn't enough to run my business and earn money, so I decided to put an advert out on our social media saying if you're homeless, you can come to the shop to use our services for free, and also if you're unemployed and you've got a job interview you can do the same thing. You can come in, get tidied up and we wish them luck with their job interview.

"And I'm proud to say we've got loyal customers now who we first met when they were unemployed and now they're working and they stick with us."
